“An enormous printer weighing more than 12 tons is creating what is believed to be the first 3D-printed, two-story home in the United States.”

That’s according to a new video from Reuters News, highlighting the 4,000-square-foot home in Houston, Texas.

The huge printer erected on the site requires 330 hours of printing to create the three-bedroom home.

Called the House of Cores, the design combines concrete 3D printing with wood framing.

The project is the culmination of a two-year collaborative effort between architectural designers Leslie Lok and Sasa Zivkovic, principals of HANNAH; along with PERI 3D Construction, and CIVE, one of the leading engineering and design/build contractors in Houston.
